Parmesan Garlic Breadsticks

I think my children could live on breadsticks, and these Parmesan Garlic Breadsticks are our absolute favorite. Whether dipped in warm marinara sauce or a bowl of hot soup, we just can’t seem to get enough! And I love that these breadsticks are so easy to make. They use just a few simple ingredients and have a short rise time, which is great if you’re like me and forget that you wanted to make homemade bread for dinner until it’s too late.

Parmesan cheese and garlic are a classic combination, but other varieties of cheese work well too.

Serves: 6-8
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon yeast
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 1/2 to 4 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • Coarse salt, for sprinkling
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine warm water, yeast and sugar. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in olive oil and salt.
  3. Gradually add the flour until a soft dough forms. Let dough raise for 10 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, stir together melted butter and minced garlic.
  5. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a large square, about 16x16 inches.
  6. Brush dough with half of the garlic butter. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  7. Fold dough in half, then cut into 1 inch wide strips.
  8. Twist strips and place on 2 lightly greased baking sheets. Allow breadsticks to raise for 15-20 minutes while you preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  9. Bake for about 18-20 minutes, or until golden brown.
  10. Brush breadsticks with remaining garlic butter and sprinkle with coarse salt.
